CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., April 12 (UPI) -- SpaceX will make its second attempt at landing a Falcon 9 rocket on a floating platform in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday.
The first time SpaceX attempted the landing, the fins that help stabilize the rocket ran out of hydraulic fluid and the rocket crashed onto the platform at an angle.
The cargo vessel the rocket is taking up is headed for the International Space Station, and it contains 4,300 pounds of supplies. The supplies include food and scientific experiments.
The Monday flight will be the halfway mark for SpaceX's contract with NASA, as the sixth of 12 total flights on the $1.6 billion contract.
